16 December, 1971 was the day when India won the war against Pakistan, and was also able to liberate Bangla Desh from Pakistan's rule. Although the ruling dictator of Pakistan surrendered unconditionally to India, some of the hard-lined Pakistani soldiers were bitter and angry at the surrender, as they wanted to continue fighting the Indians until their last breath. They retreated in silent and later came together to form their own groups of Jihaadi soldiers to carry out terrorists attacks against neighboring India. One of them was Dost Khan (Gulshan Grover). Although the Indian authorities were aware of Dost Khan's terrorist activities, they were unable to apprehend him as he kept changing disguises, and always kept one step ahead of the authorities. This matter was assigned to Chief of Revenue Intelligence Vir Vijay singh (Danny Denzongpa) and his team of Vikram (Milind Soman), Victor (Sushant Singh), and Sheeba (Dipanita Sharma).

7 November 2010 | by (India) – See all my reviews

it is quite entertaining movie. keeps u al1 the time on edge of your seat. it depicts intelligent film making by mani shankar. very well written story. good direction and and better cinematography. Though actors didn't look matured apart from the supporting actor victor, danny and gulshan grover. Milind was expressionless same goes with actress. But overall good story telling. n i believe its a original one not a copy of some Hollywood flick!!

though end was bit patchy and child genius concept was little difficult to grasp. overall complete movie is good stuff. A definitely recommend this to those who want to see some intelligent film making by Bollywood.
